Earlier this week I wrote about the movie Up in the Air, and George Clooneys’ characters’ totally cheesy speech about endings being a catalyst for pursuing your dreams.
This week at the gym I read an article in a fash/trash magazine about an Aussie girl who did just that. Having relocated from Australia to New York after landing her dream job, she was one of thousands of employees laid off by her new company at the height of the GFC. After running back to Australia to spend a few weeks licking her wounds in the Queensland sun, she returned to New York to try and get her life back on track.
This wasn’t the first time that she had been laid off- in fact it was the 4th redundancy in a relatively short period of time. So at 1am one morning she started to write a book about her (unfortunate) experiences. It has subsequently been published.
I have no idea what her birth date is, or what transits were activating her chart at the time, but this is a great example of opportunity knocking, so I am suspecting Jupiter was active in some way.
The thing with opportunity, particular Jupiter opportunities, is that it rarely comes labelled as such- no nice neat packaging in pretty paper with a gift tag saying “I am an opportunity, please open me.”
Sometimes opportunities only show themselves because you believe they exist- sort of like the whole fairies in the bottom of the garden thing. If you believe something is impossible, generally speaking… it is. Likewise, if your life is full of tasks and responsibilities that essentially give it no meaning, there physically is no room for opportunity to be noticed. This is the premise behind the cheesey and ever so slightly patronising analogy Clooneys’ character continues to use as he lets people go.
It doesn’t necessarily follow that all opportunity offered during Jupiter transits is good. OK, Jupiter wants you say “yes”, but sometimes “no” is the right answer. Sometimes we say “yes” just because on paper it seems perfect, but if your heart doesn’t beat even a little faster, it might be best to walk away.
I have told this story before, but when Jupiter transited my Midheaven, I felt like I needed to run away from where I was- as fast and as far as I could. A job I really didn’t need to look for fell into my lap. I was flattered and very nearly accepted for that reason and the apparent perfection of the role. But the thought of it didn’t excite me, instead I imagined handcuffs and chains… and not in an interesting way!
In agonising over the decision, I found both a solution to the original problem and something that did make my heart beat faster. Saying “no” was, in hindsight, the best thing I could have done & the most generous thing I could have done- it left that opportunity open for somebody for whom it would be perfect. I like to think Jupiter would have been happy with that outcome.
